I know DESMOS was made for Math , but I have been using it for my Morning Meeting activities. I try to switch up the things that I post for them to do.
I found this list of "50 Icebreaker Questions for Kids" during my frantic search for ways to break the ice in September.
The question that most recently caught my eye was, "If it was raining meatballs, would you eat them?"
Their responses made me laugh!
I needed to laugh. I needed to have that moment where the computer was my friend, and not my foe. Just that moment in time, where the stress melted away, and I sat at my desk, flanked by three computers and a monitor, and laughed at my kids' responses.
"No, because no one knows where it came from. And I don't really like meatballs."
"No, because you don't know where those meatballs been."
"I would not eat those meatballs because I don't know where they came from. Somebody could have put something in them."
"Yeah, I would get a plate and eat."
"I would not eat them because they are all on the floor. Plus the Coronavirus and all that is going on..."
"No, who knows where they have been. They might be rotten, taste horrible, be raw, who knows?"
"Yes, I would eat them, but straight out the sky, not off the ground."
"Depends on if they're cooked properly and if they're not vegan. If they taste good, and it's real meat, I don't see why not. I get it if you don't know where they came from...but it's free meatballs.' (My favorite!)
I need more moments like this. WE need more moments like this.
If it was raining meatballs, would you eat them? :)
